    Alright so maybe the tire guy thought the question was about literally mounting a tire on a wheel. They get a pass...for now 👀

    Also don't forget that most modern cars are so useless they don't come with a spare tyre. You have to ask for it as an optional extra, and then you'll get one of those daft half wheels that's good for nothing .Welcome to the modern age, where the customers job is to sit down, shut up and get **** on

    Fun fact, Speed bumps and dips are actually designed to be driven over at certain speed, hence the name speed bumps, and not stop bumps. Go faster and you shake loose a kidney stone. Go slower, and it's the India Jones ride. Find the sweet spot, and you don't even notice.

    I saw a great one about how to stop power outlet pins being bent. Someone suggested sticking a metal knife in there to straighten it. He \ she got a bunch of abuse about it. Their response was... if anyone is foolish enough to trust an unknown stranger to extent they will push metal cutlery into a power outlet should be removed from the gene pool. Survival of the fittest.. I agree... make sure you, your kids, grandparents etc are all aware the internet is sometimes un truthful and a gentleman calling you from your "bank's fraud department" is not usually who they say they are. Same with free advice on the internet... its bull.. The internet net Lies, people lie.... get over it. if you follow quora to get good advice, God help us.

    I agree with not negotiating but not for the reason Mark stated. Research your blue book value and consider based off of that what a car is worth to you. Make an offer based off of that and if it is not what you want then walk away. There are other dealerships and other cars out there. If it is not a unique one off car then just walk away if the price is not what you want.

    Just my opinion but anyone who has spent the time studying to get a PHD and so on probably doesn’t have the physical ability to change a tire. Also that person was from the UK and which is a country smaller than some states in the US, so the drive to a shop to fix said tire after gooping it up would be easy. If you live in let’s say Texas and closest shop is 100 miles it probably wouldn’t work out😁

    He is right about the negotiation... essentially the psychology of negotiation is - we both need to be unhappy. If party 1 is happy, then party 2 isn't and vicaversa. Essentially the only way to settle a negotiation is to have two unhappy parties. This is FBI negotiation 101! And it's why they don't budge on their conditions when dealing with a hostage situation. You're goal is to get "what you want" not negotiate for something close

  49. RavenCreations

    RavenCreations15 วันที่ผ่านมา

    I don't subscribe to the ignorance is bliss argument. If I paid the sticker price, It'd be eating away at me that I'd overpaid. Dealer prices are set with the expectation that they'll be beaten down. If you don't negotiate, you're a shmuck. These days, dealers even use "dynamic pricing" where they change their prices based on what similar cars are being advertised for. I've been looking for a car, and the same car (whose advert says the price has been reduced) has actually gone up from £24k when it was first advertised to £30k in about a month, just because there were other similar cars advertised at £30k and the dealer wants a piece of the action. We're living in a price-fixing nightmare for car buying. If one dealer thinks their car is worth another grand, they put it on the price, but then within a week all of the others have upped their prices. It's our own responsibility to make sure we're not being taken for a ride. Shop mid-week when trade is slow, and at the end of the month, when the salesman has targets to meet, and play hardball. It's not your job to keep the dealer happy. He's the professional - if he can't handle it, he's in the wrong game. (Before anyone cries "sexist", I only said "he" because I've never met a single car saleswoman ever).

    @5 min... I'm a dealer TECH who actually bought a used car from the Ford Lincoln Mazda dealer I work at. Though I had the advantage of knowing more about what I was buying. I DIDN'T NEGOTIATE. Even as the dealer sublet this car for a safety inspection and service I inspected it myself. I got it for 2500 less than asking and I haven't driven or bought a car that put a smile on my face like this one. I love my job.

    Yes, I know how to change a tire. And I know how to mount a tire. Mounting a tire takes special equipment. I would not attempt to do it at home. Changing a tire, however, can be a handy skill when you're stranded at the side of the road with a flat. Those lug nuts are really torqued down on modern cars. It does take a lot of strength to break them loose. Don't even try to drive any further than the nearest garage on the spare tire.

    I don't know why but I owned two cars that were probably the fastest things I've ever driven. One was an 2000 Oldsmobile intrigue gl. You may think that sounds slow but get behind it and rev it and you'll see what I'm talking about. The other one was a 1999 Pontiac Grand am GT. I don't know why that car was fast but I found myself doing 90 on the interstate where I live without realizing it.

    I know this is old but if you’re buying a car from a big dealership like one where each salesman has an office with a phone- when you negotiate and they say let me go check with my manager and leave the room they are mentally making you think it’s you and the salesman vs the manager as if the salesman has no power over the price. Most big dealership chains will do this and they will leave their phone line open so they can listen from another office to get a feel for how much you’ll move on the price…if you’re with someone and say “if they go down even $200 I’ll take it” they know that’s your magic number…if you’re buying a new vehicle they have much less room on the price and always come with comparable pricing from other dealers and you’ll get some money off 👍🏼

    Ive bought 3 new cars at essentially dealer cost ( save options package which i negotiated separately, after the fact) by simply tipping the salesman. They are only trying to "upsell" you to make some extra cash, if you eliminate the company taking a slice for themselves, the money you do give them willingly will go 10x further than the money they have to work out of you. When i bought my pickup a few years back i gave the guy $1000 and saved $9k by the time i walked out.
